Inspiring and Educating Healers
The Pacific Northwest Massage Academy mission is to educate, inspire and serve our community through the healing power of massage therapy and bodywork.
At PNWMA, we believe in going above and beyond expectations.
This reflects in our massage therapy training program which far exceeds accreditation requirements. Industry experts with experience in the local community serve as not only educators but as mentors during and after training to offer advice and assist with career development.
As a student of PNWMA, the above and beyond philosophy will be applied to your curriculum to bring out your healing capabilities. In the classroom and clinic hours, you'll be readied for the challenges and growth opportunities with real world clients.
Your education as a healer does not end after graduation. We offer continuing education consistently to help graduates and other healers in our community so that we may all continue to improve our skills. We aim to be a force for quality education.
